Is Stealing Ever Good?
Is there ever a time when stealing is good?
Yes, the inspired stealing of imagination should always be encouraged.
There is no unoriginal theft left.
Some call stealing inspiration, but if you see or experience something and then change or employ those experiences in your life — you have effectively borrowed and stolen the thoughts of others and I wholly encourage that effort.
I am not condoning plagiarism, but I am supporting the opportunity to consider and use ideas that are not your own because there are no original thoughts left in the world.
We are ignited by the shared memories of others and we must honor the covenant of those tendrilous relationships.
The theft confirms the collective genius.
